Programs being executed across Fortune 1000 companies in retail,
hospitality, logistics, automotive and other industries
HERNDON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Strayer Education, Inc., an education services company and owner of Strayer
University, today announced the launch of Strayer@Work,
a new division that partners with corporate clients to identify the
skills gap in their organizations and deliver targeted training programs
and customized college degrees to boost employee performance and reduce
turnover. Strayer@Work has partnered with Fortune 1000 companies across
a breadth of industries to unlock the hidden value trapped in
organizations by diagnosing critical skill gaps and building customized,
analytics- and ROI-driven programs that optimize employee performance in
the roles where gaps are the greatest.
"With losses in productivity, competitiveness, and innovation, U.S.
companies are starved for new ways of inspiring, improving and retaining
high levels of employee performance," said Karl McDonnell, CEO of
Strayer Education. "Strayer@Work is helping companies address these
issues by identifying the critical skills driving internal performance
gaps and implementing learning programs that accelerate employee
development. The ROI associated with this process is real and measurable
-- we have discovered that closing internal performance gaps can be
worth anywhere from 7-15% of revenue."
Strayer@Work provides two unique lines of service:
Skills@Work, a proprietary program that identifies the critical skills
and mindsets that drive performance gaps within a company and builds
customized solutions to make those skills stick across the workforce.
Degrees@Work, which offers a company's workforce the opportunity to
earn an associate, bachelor's or master's degree from Strayer
University, an accredited institution of higher learning, at no cost
and with no debt. Courses within degree programs are intended to help
employees advance their careers, while enhancing their skill sets, and
can be customized to prioritize and accelerate skill development in
critical job functions.
"We are excited to see our mission of changing lives through education
manifest itself in Strayer@Work," said McDonnell. "Education and
business must be inextricably linked in order for today's workers and
companies to succeed. We look forward to helping develop the next
generation of top talent and competitive companies with Strayer's new
offering for businesses."
